Football clinic brings footballs brightest minds to Lehigh Valley

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. – The 2014 NIKE Coach of the Year Clinic will be held in Allentown February 27 - March 1 at the Holiday Inn Conference Center. The clinic, which is held throughout the country, will feature the nation’s top college football coaches.

The clinic, founded by legendary coaches Bud Wilkinson and Duffy Daugherty more than 30 years ago, is an event featuring 73 Division 1A college head coaches on the NIKE staff.

Attendees will pick up techniques, philosophy, pointers, and strategy from the most respected men in their field. Last year, nearly 13,000 high school coaches attended the 21 clinics throughout the country, which offered a great opportunity to share ideas at the clinic social events with your coaching peers.

The clinic has many other fine features including a NIKE football portfolio for all registered coaches, evening entertainment and hospitality, and excellent clinic notes and audio visual aids. The clinic will also have an outstanding exhibit area, and college or in-service credit is available at most sites. Sign up today. Limited space available at some clinics.
